Caitlyn Jenner’s Meme Coin Promotion Sparks Hack Suspicions

As an experienced analyst, I believe that the recent promotion of memecoins named after high-profile figures like Caitlyn Jenner and Rich The Kid on their respective social media accounts raises serious concerns about security breaches and potential hacking incidents. While these individuals or their representatives have denied any wrongdoing, the skepticism from the crypto community is understandable.

Caitlyn Jenner, who is both an Olympian and a media personality, has been actively endorsing a memecoin named after her through her X social media account. This memecoin was introduced via the token launchpad Pump. The ensuing promotion on social media led to discussions about whether Jenner’s account had been hacked, as it shared a link to the new token over the weekend.

In reaction to the hack accusations, Jenner’s Twitter account published a string of tweets refuting any security breach. During a Twitter Space discussion, Jenner’s manager reportedly answered queries while Jenner herself asserted that she was out golfing. However, some X users remain unconvinced, suspecting that the clips and messages might be fabricated using AI technology. Additional content emerged, consisting of recordings attributed to Jenner and her manager, Sophia Hutchinson, emphasizing that the account had not been compromised and the tweets were authentic.

As a researcher, I’ve come across some intriguing parallels between recent content on Rapper Rich the Kid’s Twitter account and posts made by Caitlyn Jenner earlier today. However, there’s been a development – Rich the Kid’s account has now been deactivated. The rapper is said to have inadvertently promoted new tokens on the Solana-based platform Pump. It’s important to note that neither Rich the Kid nor his management have confirmed whether this was due to a hacking incident.

A well-known, pseudonymous cryptocurrency investor named Gigantic-Cassocked-Rebirth (GCR) announced that their X account had been hacked on May 26th. Previously, this account had shared information about ORDI and Luna2.0 on its social media platform.

Experts like Bitcoin developer Udi Wertheimer and Chinese crypto blogger Colin Wu have proposed that recent hacking incidents could be part of a larger plan to target prominent individuals in the cryptocurrency and celebrity realms. Notably, Wu mentioned that the hacker had cleverly set up trading positions just prior to making deceptive announcements.
